The End of Poverty by Jeffrey Sachs

2 pages | 440 words

In his book, "The End of Poverty", Jeffrey Sachs lays out a plan for economic success that he believes can end poverty in our lifetime. Sachs argues that poverty is not caused by a lack of resources or by heredity, but by external factors such as debt, disease, and poor governance. He proposes that the world's wealthiest nations should provide aid to developing countries in the form of debt relief, clinical economics, and technical assistance. Sachs also advocates for the United Nations Millennium project, which aims to eradicate extreme poverty by 2030.
